As an employer who is looking to hire the most qualified individual, you will want to look at the largest pool of candidates available – this will include people with disabilities. There are a large number of highly educated, motivated, and reliable individuals who would make productive employees but are often overlooked during the recruitment process due to their disabilities. With accommodation support, these individuals can be successfully integrated into your workforce – often with little to no cost.
Accommodation support is a requirement, not an option. As an employer, it is your duty to provide accommodation to those with disabilities, according to the Canadian Human Rights Commission's Employment Equity Act (click here to review the Act).
At PPRC, we can assist public organizations and private sector companies of all sizes with accommodation support. By providing advice, consultations, and assessment services, we can help companies comply with their legal duty to accommodate.
